The season has come to close but still a great number of Leicester players are far from finished as international duty calls and can be a blessing in disguise for some as others feel this might be too much as they would certainly love to get a vecation.

Jonny Evans is one that looks forward to further action with N Ireland as they take on Cypros and Kosovo after their 1-0 defeat at home to Greece, this was his 95th cap for his country.

Jonny Evans is one of those players that came back mid season and feels like he has not had enough action and really enjoying his time at this stage of the season getting more games under his belt as he takes on Nation League opponents.

We have over a season been a bit uncertain about the contribution of Jannik Vestergaard but still given full confidence from his national captain and a starting position in the Danish team alongside Kasper Schmeichel. Vestergaard left the field after 60 minutes with France in a 1-0 lead, but still getting the confidence to be the main and centre defender in a back three showes his status.

To play football against the very best players in the World can be done for your nation and to be in Europe might not be as important when you get those results as Denmark did against France. Daniel Iversen was an unused sub and shows really what quality Leicester posess at present time.

Nation League is a fantastic idea and something different as you will be able to play for something and see a number of friendlies being dropped. We certainly believe that players benefit heavily from these type of experiences.

Belgium had to see themselves defeated in heavy figures by neighbour Netherlands with Timothy Castagne being played and Youri Tielemans an unused sub. Dennis Praet is also included in the 32 men squad for these four international fixtures.

James Justin made his England debut in the 0-1 clash vs. Hungary. Wesley Fofana has been in action for France U.21, Thanawat Suengchitthawon is out representing Thailand U.21. Danny Ward played 45 minutes for Wales vs. Poland. Daniel Amartey played for Ghana in their win vs. Madagaskar.

To follow up on all those players out on internatinal duty this list from official sources are great and will get you the full overview.
